This beautiful black and natural turtle basket is handmade in Rwanda from smooth sisal wrapped around coiled grass. It is sturdy and durable, and has a loop on the back for hanging on the wall. At 12" diameter and 2" deep it's a good size for holding fruit or bread, and we also love it displayed on a wall. This African basket is a fair trade product. Because it is handmade from natural materials, there will be slight variations in size, shape, pattern, and color from basket to basket.
